Merger We Wrote

This is a duel post, Featured on 2 Blogs Foxxfyrre’s Honk’n’holl’r and Solitary Views It was written simultaneously by Foxxfyrre & Mr. Lance using Google docs and published on both. 

There once were these two little blogs, which for a long time went almost unnoticed until one day the powers of the Google (a very wise and powerful blizard -- that’s blogspeak for blog + wizard) cast a very unusual spell. This spell crossed the entire blogoshpere until it finally entranced Foxxfyrre the serf and Sir Lancecannot under its grasp. Foxxfyrre and Sir Lance now merged through the ethereal blanes (blog +planes) becoming one, but not one. With the Google spell fully cast, Foxxfyrre and Sir Lance only need to focus thoughts (as if we really can) and all appears as one entity, yet we are still granted power of individual thought.

To illustrate the powers of the Google, I, Foxxfyrre will now think only in Forrest Green, and Sir Lance will think only in....”What colour do you wanna be Lance?”
Red, that is a bolder pink...right?
You’re right, it does look a little pink.
It’s all good, I know I’m all man! (agreed??)
Just a sec, I’m looking for an all man pic that will address your colour issues.
This blog post is rated “R” (For Respectable)
I could not find an appropriate real man pic, but I did find your office chair.

<-- Not my real chair!

That’s ok, I found a picture on file...
Don’t Judge me!

No one is judging -- really???
So Lance, now that we are really under the spell of the Google Collaborative Real-Time Document Editing Spell, what should our first undertaking be??

Can Google teach us how to use Yahoo!  ?? That is something I never could understand... Oh wait... You said undertaking....   I don’t know, what can we undertake without getting in trouble?

Getting Google to teach us Yahoo....I think we’d have better luck selling mechanical bull rides in a geriatric ward.  

Or condoms to catholic school girls…
or Bibles to George Bush...
I think we are getting off topic here

Oops, still thinking about Catholic school girls.....
Well how about a 10 questions meme, I will ask 5 questions, and you answer, and you ask 5 and I’ll answer??

Ok, Fire Away... Just remember my Mother reads BOTH our Blogs !

1. When you reached puberty, what appeared first? The Froggy Voice, the whisker or what?


     Froggy or Whiskers?  My Frog had whiskers... I named him Buck!  
I remember him you had him stuffed and mounted outside a French cuisine Restaurant.

2. If you had the choice of any talent with the penalty that you would lose a talent in exchange, what would you want to gain, and what would you be willing to loose?
I don’t know about talents, but I do know that I want the x-ray vision super-power for reasons I’m sure I don’t have to explain…. As for what I’m willing to loose… I don’t know I’ll just forget how to play the piano or something.  

3. Name three things that you do want completed in your life before retiring?
    Sex, Drugs, & Rock n’ Roll  - First thing(s) that came to mind... and I’m sticking to it!

4. If you woke up tomorrow and found yourself  I’m going to stop you right there! My Mother reads this blog!!! You’ve seen it here first folks, the first ever Bloggus Interuptus!!! Yeah... Sorry bout that, but I know she’d call and wonder about what I do in the mornings. I really don’t want to have that conversation with Momzie again... Sounds like someone is a morning lumberjack, got caught chopping some morning trees did ya??

5. Okay, last question. Of all of the women out there who would have been your fantasy date? Date, not romance...

What era? Any time in history or present day, or maybe even in the future if you know something we don’t. Who would not want to underestimate the power of the Google at this point.
Come on, You don’t think Whoopi Goldberg would make an awesome date?
Don’t judge me... I think I just peed myself laughing...

Okay, your turn ask me five.

1. Google put another spell on you, you have just changed genders for 48 hours... what are you going to do with your 2 days?
First, I’m really going to find out where that damn spot is that no man can find. Second, I’m going to find out what Midol really does, for I’ve accidentally taken it (I thought it was Tylenol, that’s how bad my headache was) and they knocked me out cold for two weeks. Next, I’ll probably hunt for a comfortable bra -- you’ve seen my art and know that the Google will curse me with back-breakers. Finally, I think I’ll hunt for that spot again,  if just for getting it down to perfection’s sake---really.

2. If you owned your own island, and got to make it your own country, what would you call it? And why?
I would call it Copuland, for that is what life and liberty is about, ‘cept maybe the Taxes.

3. If you rubbed the lamp and got 3 wishes, what would they be?  
Are you allowed to ask for endless wishes?
Then, first I’d have to ask for Barbara Eden as Jeannie

(Don’t complain, you got a date with Whoopi). Then I would ask for a map to that spot that no man can find, especially if question one doesn’t happen. Then I would ask for something nice to affect everyone.

4. What is your earliest memory of puberty?   
I knew you would go there. I was very, very early to blossom. It made it quite difficult for me in school in the early 60’s. I went to Catholic School for grades 1

through grade 6,

and each year the Nun’s habits got shorter, the Nuns looked younger, and I am now sooooo going to hell.

5. If you got banished to your Island alone and could only bring 5 things, what would they be?
A dog for companionship. A blender for the Martguerita's (yes I do know how to distill liquor). A lazy-boy chair. A laptop with a super-strong wireless card and infinite battery life. And a picture of my wife and family.

Thanks for joining in on our little experiment. Lance and I had way too much fun playing with Google Docs and their real-time collaborative editing feature. We didn’t know where it was going to take us, but we hope you had fun with our initial result. We had so much fun putting this together on the fly in real time, that we decided that we are going to come up with a format to put together some fun, and hopefully entertaining posts. We are not sure exactly where we are going to go with it yet, but stay tuned..

A little meme challenge for those that love to meme. Email a blog buddy that you want to do a collaborative meme. If they agree, just use Google Docs and share the document with your blog buddy. You can then edit the post in real time, and even chat in the side bar as you are creating the post. Do the 10 Questions meme, as Lance and I did above. Use 5 of your own questions to ask your blog buddy to answer, and the blog buddy will do the same in return. Unlike a regular question and answer meme, you never know what is going to be asked or what the answer you are going to receive will be until it pops up in front of you. Then you both publish that document, which you can do right inside Google Docs.

Disclaimer: Foxxfyrre and Sir Lance(cannot) in no way represent the Google Corporation.  And for legal reasons, this post is fictitious.  Google is not known to cast any spell on anyone subliminal or otherwise... Or are they?

Disclaimer #2: Lance does not (in any way, shape or form -- well, shape maybe)  have any sexual identity issues (but I did catch him staring at my ass once).

Caution!!!: Never use Google Image search to find “Nun’s Habit” pictures with safe search disabled. My eyes are still burning, and I’m really soooooooo going to hell now......
